I am so sorry but due to part of the ceiling collapsing in Owls class we will not be able to open for Year 6 until at least 3rd June please read this letter for details: 

A plan has been agreed with staff if the government enables us to open form the 1st June, it is now being scrutinised by governors and should be sent out today or tomorrow for parents. In the interest of keeping everyone as safe as possible there is an addition to the school's behaviour policy and every pupil would be expected to abide by this code of conduct when returning to school: 

School continues to be open for the children of keyworkers only, however following proposed changes that may occur on the 1st June, school will be closed for everyone during half term holiday. The week beginning 25.5.20.

Welcome to Hinstock Primary School and Hedgehogs Nursery

Where ‘Tomorrow’s success begins today’

And Learning is FUN!


As a school we welcome sharing this important and exciting period of your child’s life with you. We believe in providing inspirational starting points for learning and developing every child’s potential whatever talents and interests they may have.

At Hinstock we provide a stimulating, broad and balanced curriculum, to prepare for your child’s future by developing skills and promoting enthusiasm to pursue learning throughout their lives.  We acknowledge the importance of developing a caring and stimulating environment, where your child’s self-esteem grows enabling them to take risks and learn confidently through their achievements and mistakes.  We are an inclusive school that builds independence, responsibility, resilience, kindness and resourcefulness in preparation for life in today’s society.

Our aim is to enable every child to fulfil their potential and have opportunities to develop their own skills and interests. We encourage every child to be the best they can be and do the best they can do.

The best way to appreciate our aims and values is to come and visit us.  We want your association with the school to be a long and happy one.  Working closely with parents and carers is integral for the success of every child.  With your help we hope your child will contribute to the life of the school and take part in and enjoy the many opportunities we provide.
